5:49 am
developing any rain, gets through here. other than that, high and dry. high pressure builds in, so a nice ridge of canadian high pressure will keep us dry for the first half of the week. maybe you want to warm up with a nice scrambled egg dish like we are here this morning at clementine. that's it for now. tony, over to you. >> sure does sound look a win-win. you get to eat great food and help out a great cause. what was the name of this dish that you're cooking this morning? >> well, crayfish is a southern way, or call it crawfish, tomato scramble. so crayfish, crawfish, tomato scramble, it has rice, and it looks awesome and smells great. >> thank you, sandra. talk to you again next half-hour, see how the dish turned out. weatherwise, just mine for the monday morning commute. we had a front go through a couple of hours ago t. did produce a couple of sprinkles, but none of that is going to be left behind here for the commute, and that's certainly a good thing. temperatures are in the 60's. 62 in parkton. it's 66 in rock hall and 63 degrees in westminster. so for this time of the year,
5:50 am
it's relatively mild to start out in the 60's. as you know, it can easily be in the 40's and 50's. big area of high pressure dropping down out of the great lakes will be the dominating factor in our weather story here over the next couple of days. this front continues to slip down to the south. there's no precipitation along the front, and with the high coming in from the northwest, it's obvious that we're going to stay dry today and probably tomorrow as well. a little bit of high, thin cloud cover still showing up on the satellite, so we'll call it partly to mostly sunny. that cloud deck you see on the edge of the screen, those are the outer bands of igor. finally we get to say goodbye to this big storm. it came across bermuda last night as a category one hurricane. i didn't see any reports of catastrophic damage or anything. there was a big storm surge with it, but it's pulling away from the island now, and it will move into the open waters of the atlantic. and again, we can finally say goodbye to igor. our forecast here at home, mostly sunny, a little breezy, but nice. high temperatures this afternoon will be in the upper 70's. sunrise coming up at 6:52, and it should be a beautiful sunrise. mostly clear tonight. i'm going call it chilly.
5:51 am
